Devon Chapman comes to Ker & Downey with an extensive history of personal travel. At the age of 15, she embarked on her first solo trip to France and has been hooked on travel ever since. Pursuing an interest in education and philanthropy Devon made her first visit to Africa with a non-profit organization based in Uganda. A few years later she moved to Thailand, where she fell in love with all the magic and beauty southeast Asia has to offer. Taking advantage of every opportunity to see the world, Devon left Thailand to teach in southern Switzerland, which still stands high on her list of the most beautiful places she has ever been.
